Multi-Stream Recycling

The City offers residential recycling service to single-family residences and to multi-family units up to four-plexes. Customers must reside within Grand Junction city limits. Currently, the City offers a once-per-month service for $1.75 per month. This charge can be added to the customer's monthly City utility bill. If the property is a rental, the tenant may have the option to pay the $21.00 annual fee directly to the City of Grand Junction Recycling Division.

Current twice-per-month customers are able to keep their service and transfer it with them, but no new twice-per-month accounts are being created.

Customers should have material ready by 7 a.m. on the day of collection and at the location designated by the City (typically at curbside on the street bearing the service address) at the time of sign-up. Whenever possible, the City will return your recycling containers to a location near your house and secure them as best as possible to prevent loss. The City is not responsible for lost, stolen, or missing containers. Note that your pick-up day will vary with location throughout the City, and will not always coincide with any trash services you may receive.

The City is transitioning from multi-stream recycling collection to the dual stream recycling program. Residents will receive notice by mail when the new program expands to each neighborhood.
